Dr. James Dobson, Christian talk radio host, announced his pick to fill the Senate vacancy left by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Voicing his support for former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate seat for Alabama, Dobson told World Net Daily that he is pleased to back Moore for Senate.
“It is my pleasure to be among the many solid conservatives who are supporting Judge Roy Moore’s candidacy for the United States Senate,” Dobson told the website. “I’ve known Judge Moore for over 25 years, and I know him to be a man of proven character and integrity. I often ask God to raise up men and women of faith who will govern the nation with biblical wisdom. I believe Judge Moore to be such a man for this time."
He added that as a "private individual," he is "honored to endorse Roy Moore for the United States Senate," and claimed that he prays Moore's election "will be the start of a new generation of leaders who will return this nation to the constitutional principles upon which it was founded."
“I urge my friends in Alabama to go to the polls this Tuesday and vote for Judge Roy Moore for the United States Senate,” Dobson concluded.
Moore is among the eight candidates, which includes incumbent Sen. Luther Strange and Rep. Mo Brooks, competing for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat.
On the Democratic side of the election, U.S. Attorney Doug Jones is the leading primary candidate.
